Keeping Radio on while washing Car

I have a real simple (and dumb) question.

How do I keep the radio on when I have the ignition on whilst washing my car. It seems to turn off automatically after about 5 minutes? Is there a setting somewhere to change this?

The car is shutting down, the battery is probably not 100% don't worry.

I belive default time is 15 min. the fact that yours only last 5 min is due to a low battery. Mine would only last about 2 min and was due to a bad battery.

Since I replaced battery radio stays on for about 15 min just like when new.

so do a load test on your battery and replace if necessary. Salud!

you guys are so funny.

Most cars you can keep the radio/IPHONE/CD player on and happily wash away while you listen to your favourite music, the Footy, Cricket. But seems not with the BM
